The past couple of days has seen hostile reactions and growing discrimination against people suspected of being infected with the coronavirus in Mozambique.
Health ministry says it has restricted the amount of information it releases about the disease, including not disclosing locations where cases have been confirmed.
In the central city of Beira, there are reports that those infected have been threatened with lynching.
This led to a fall in the number of people going to clinics to report flu-like systems.
Health workers who fear that this development might lead to a spike in unknown and unattended cases, are trying to convince communities to seek medical help when needed.
